McFarland, Roscoe C.
AFC Catalog Record
McFarland stops abruptly and says "stop it" (he can't seem to find the tune), then starts again. (Technically should be a new band, but combined on AFS card as 1567B1 and preserved as such.) ID'd as "Macfarlane" on AFS Card. McFarland was from nearby Lakeville.
